Archbishop Monsignor Barsi presided in the St Nicholas Church on Monday, December 4, for the celebration of the traditional Saint Barbara Mass, an early Christian Greek saint and martyr. The Saint is ”the patron and protector” of the Fire Brigade.

The church service took place in the presence of Colonel Luc Fringant, Commander Superior of the Public Forces representing the Sovereign Prince, and Patrice Cellario, Minister of the Interior representing the Minister of State, and numerous Monegasque and French Authorities.

A garden bears the Saint’s name in Monaco. Located in the extension of the Jardin Saint Martin, it runs along the southeast facade of the Rock. It was built around 1830 during the reign of Prince Honoré V.
